    Thailand: World’s Leading Destination for Value for Money 

    Thailand World Destination Value for Money

    With fluctuating oil prices, dwindling global economies and volatile currency exchange rates, travelers are now, more than ever, seeking out tourism destinations which offer the upmost value for money.

    This is where Thailand, the Land of Smiles and the tourism epicenter of Southeast Asia steps in and paves the way; a country where those with higher spending power can enjoy a luxury 5-star hotel room (Luxury Hotels Thailand) for just a 100 Euro and an exquisitely romantic buffet dinner cruise for 60 Euro. Then, for those on a budget (Budget Hotels Thailand)  an exotically located beach bungalow (Beach Resorts Reservations) can be had for 15 Euro and a dish of tasty shrimp fried rice for even less than a Euro.

    If you ask a professional writer how to excel in their industry or seek out such advice from how-to-become-a-writer books, the advice you will most likely discover would be something along the lines of “just write” – as simple as that.

    But committing your life to the job title of “writer” may require second thoughts, said travel writer Ploy Mallikamas.

    “Anybody can write, as I was once told by a professional writer. But, to write for a living, in Thailand especially, you need a good deal of courage and a back-up plan before pledging your life for your passion instead of your pay cheque.” (More …)

    As part of the annual French cultural festival, La Fête 2009, a visionary French artist and photographer visited Thailand for his first exhibition in the kingdom. Having developed powerful work by blending painting, drawing, sculpture and architecture since the 1980s, he transforms deserted spaces before they are destroyed.

    Inspired by abandoned spaces, Georges Rousse has created his works of image to look like overlays of colour. Each photo is only viewable in its intended and precise focus. (More …)

    The brewers of Singha beer made a bold statement at Bangkok International Fashion Week by tacking their lion motif onto outfits – and in the process injecting some genuine “Thainess”, something not always evident in local clothes shows.

    Marketing manager Piti Bhirombhakdi says the strategy is to lure beer lovers into fashion.

    “Even if you don’t drink beer, you might buy our clothes because they have a strong connection to what Singha beer stands for,” he says. (More …)
